Salt Water Fishing and Runs
For King Salmon the peak season in mid-May through mid-July.
For Silver Salmon, the peak season begins during the first week of July and runs through the middle of September. This is good for freshwater or saltwater fishing though saltwater is more towards the beginning of the run.
The Pink Salmon are available from mid-June through the end of August. For freshwater, these salmon only spawn every other year on the even numbered years.
For Sockeye Salmon, the run begins around the first of June and runs through the middle of July. This is one of the best eating salmon you can catch.
The Chum Salmon, also known as the dog or tiger salmon, have a short peak from the beginning of July until the first week of August. These are fun to catch, but not so great to eat unless you catch them in the ocean. They tend to deteriorate much quicker than most Salmon do once they get into freshwater.
Ling Cod and Rockfish peak from mid-May through the second week of September. Ling Cod are awesome fish. They have a huge mouth long spiky teeth. They are long and lean, and they put up a fight when you hook one. Rockfish, on the other hand, are fun to catch. These include bass, snapper, and cods. Try them with a fly rod. It will blow you mind.
Trout peak from mid-May through the second week of September and are available in the local streams.
Steelhead peak in mid-May through the end of July. These are worthy fish to target. They are the saltwater version of rainbow trout and are perfect on a fly or lure.
Halibut peak mid-June through mid-September. The migration of the salmon draws the big halibut closer to shore. The record in Alaska for sports-caught Halibut is 459 pounds.
